It has been a. while since I purchased this harness so it is well tested. It is good quality and well made, but there is a major flaw. The straps going around the neck lacks an opening clasp and makes it far more difficult to put on and off. The under arms bands are soft and I believe comfortable. My dog loves the beach and running into the surf and the metal adjustment on the straps where the lead connects on the back has not weathered well with the salt and beach sand and is almost impossible to adjust along the cord. This is disappointing. I hope the manufacturer takes note and looks at these issues, as this is not a cheap item and should be simple to put on and remove. The dog still pulls strongly with this harness.
This harness might be okay for some (long-haired) dogs, and it does reduce pulling, but for my (short haired) dog it only took a few days of using it before my dog had sores in her "armpits". I would not recommend.
Our labradoodle is 27kg of muscle, 14 months old, cute as a button and pulls like a train during walks. The moment I put this harness on her she stopped 75% of the pulling, an instant change. Fits her well, seems very comfortable and totally does what it’s meant to do. If she does pull, the shock absorbing cords in the harness ease the load onto me. It’s totally changed walks from being a pain to being ok. Super happy, highly recommend!
I have a young puppy who is very enthusiastic about his walks. This harness makes him easier to control & he really does pull less. I love that it has the option to attach the lead at the chest or the back. Highly recommended
